Short description: The purpose of this document is to provide guidance to Regional risk assessors on how to assess site-specific oral bioavailability of metals in soils for use in human health risk assessments. This guidance is focused on media-specific relative bioavailability and does not address adjustments to default absolute bioavailability values. Also, this guidance addresses human health risk assessment and may not be necessarily useful for evaluating ecological receptors. Finally, the guidance document provides information on methodologies for directly assessing bioavailability and does not pertain to indirect methods for predicting bioavailability
